This long term sub binder is perfect for maternity leaves, illnesses, or any extended leave you may need to take, as well as short term absences. All the information for your substitute is laid out- so all you have to do is fill it in.  You’ll love how it makes planning for your sub a breeze AND how many compliments you will get about how useful (and cute!) your sub binder is. This includes calendar pages, scope & sequences, weekly planning and more! All in all, this resource includes over 200 editable pages!

Classroom Tour

Give the sub a tour of your classroom! This is totally customizable. Add your own pictures and text!

Give your maternity sub a classroom tour! This will help them learn their way around from the classroom, and in this format they will be able to refer back to it as well.

Student Profiles

Let your sub know each student’s name, academic info, behavior info, and tips for success! Include a picture as well and your sub will be able to meet your student’s needs in no time at all.

Leave information about each of your students with the sub. This will not only help your sub know what they need, but help them to connect with your class.

Editable Info Pages

The document includes editable pages for everything you will need! If there’s a section you need that is not included, don’t worry! Blank ones are included as well so you can add as many pages as you need.

Leave transportation information so the sub knows who goes where after school.

Subject Specific “Cheat Sheets”

Leave cheat sheets for each subject for your sub to refer to. You can let them know your routines for the block, important dates, assessment info, and more.

Planning Pages

This document will also help you plan for your absence. Year at a Glance, Month at a Glance pages are included. Weekly planning pages for ALL core subjects, specials, guided reading, centers, and technology are included. Blank planning pages are included, too!

Leave detailed planning for the first week or so of your leave (or whatever is required).

Be prepared for short term absences, too!

All contents of our best-selling Editable Sub Binder are also included in this document. This includes the editable seating chart, schedule pages, more info pages, end of the day form, substitute punch cards, and more!

Please note that you will need PowerPoint in order to access the most up-to-date version of the substitute binder! You will also need to download two fonts if you want the text that you type to match the rest of the sub binder. The fonts are free and links to the fonts and installation directions are included within the resource. 🙂 An editable PDF version is also included.

    The amount of mileage I will get out of this has yet to be measured. I can’t believe that all is this is available and at such a great price.

    I’m going out for maternity leave in about 5 weeks and planned to sit down to create a procedures binder this weekend. Thinking about all the elements I’d like to include, I figured I would search for a maternity binder and that’s when I came across your time saving and thorough product. I am very excited to use this for planning! It’s going to be such a wonderful resource for my long term sub.
    Thank you!!
